“Excellent food, service & location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

A friend from Auckland recommended this winery & we were so impressed with the food, wine & service. We had lunch over looking the gardens & pond, our waiter Terry was attentive & friendly & had a good knowledge of NZ wines. We would definitely recommend visiting this restaurant if you are in the Bay of Islands area.

“Great food, great surroundings, great entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

We went to an evening Jazz concert to hear the Nairobi Trio, and booked for the meal and show option. There were three options for the meal - I chose the snapper on risotto and OMG it was divine but rather small portion. There was no starter or dessert options. The food was great and the show exceptional, with the violin player getting carried away and leaping on the tables to play. He didn't even knock over any wine glasses. A wondefully fun evening. Will look forward to seeing the Nairobi Trio back at Marsden Estate in January - outside in the wonderful gardens this time.

“Excellent wines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

A great choice of restaurant in Kerikeri. It is advisable to book in high season but you can always pop in on the off chance. The restaurant is only open during the day which is a pity as it would make the ideal place to watch the sun go down with a glass of their Pinot Grigio. The sharing platter of breads,dips and deli is a good choice but the daily specials are usually to hard to resist.

“Great wine, great atmosphere”

Stopped by for a spot of wine tasting and lunch and definitely not disappointed. Wonderful selection of wine at reasonably prices, including a couple of varieties out of the ordinary. Food was nice, staff knew what was gluten free or able to to be adjusted. Wife's risotto was just al dente, my pasta well dressed in a yummy white wine sauce.
Took away full bellies and a mixed dozen of delicious-ness!
